Would make a stunning gift!

When this gift set arrived I was pleasantly surprised. It was very well presented and made an ideal gift. The recipient was also chuffed! This is a gorgeous fragrance, which is is neither subtle nor overpowering. It is a very sexy masculine scent, which lasts all day. The shower gel was also a welcomed addition, which causes the fragrance to be locked into the skin and last longer. It is also a lovely treat to have in the shower! I'd find it difficult to believe that anyone could be disappointed with this gift set and it is at a fantastic price-well done Escentual!

Was looking for an additonal cleanser for the days when I wanted an alternative to La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution, which I have been using for some time. However, there are times when I would like to use a cleanser that allows me to wash my face and this cleanser is perfect for that. It only requires a small amount so I am confident that it will last a good while. It also lathers up very well. The only slight negative that I could find is that it does strip my face of natural oils and and could see that it has the potential to dry out the skin if I were to use it everyday as my skin is not exvessively oily. Other then that I am pleased with it. .

My skin absolutely loves this product! The results are instant. My skin literally felt so good just after the 1st application. It absorbs into the skin really nicely and your face remains hydrated all day. One thing that I have also noticed is that I no longer have any dry patches on my skin. An added bonus is also that it contains UV protection! so for me this is a definite winner!

This moisturizer is my absolute favourite. I have finally found a moisturizer that I am thrilled with in every sense. It's texture is amazing and I felt the difference instantly. It literally did transform my skin. It requires such a small amount and therefore, it will last for a long time! I was also impressed with the fact that it also contains UV protection, which is definitely an added bonus. My main issue was finding a moisturizer with the right balance-not too greasy, but provides just the right amount of moisture. All I can say is Hydraphase UV where have you been all my life?!

This cleanser is ideal for those that want a quick but effective cleanse. It really does get rid of every last trace of dirt and grime. I do not wear make-up but can imagine that it would be really good at removing it. It is an effortless process and it always amazes me to see just how much dirt it does actually remove. I must admit it does smell quite harsh, which I was quite surprised about considering the fact that it isn't harsh on the skin. Overall I am pleased with it as an alternative to the cleansing gel and tend to use it only at night, when I don't feel quite up to spending a long time cleansing and toning! Would definitely recommend it.

I purchased this toner as I wanted to try something other the the thermal spring spray that I had been using. This toner is very soothing and does not dry out the skin whatsoever. It is very easy to apply and it is extremely delicate, which is great for my overly sensitive skin. I would definitely recommend this toner and will be sticking with this from now on!

I recently purchased this cleanser and am very pleased that I did. Firstly it is dispensed via pump action which equals less wastage and less bother for me, so I love that fact and it also smells gorgeous! However, I did buy it on the understanding that it could be used with cotton wool and didn't require any washing off, but this was not the case and the application directions stated here appear to be incorrect (however Escentual's are not the only retailer that has conflicting information regarding this point on their website). I did check the official La Roche-Posay website as well as the directions on the product bottle and it states that it should be applied to a wet face and requires washing off. So that is something to consider if you really are just after a wipe off cleanser, but it has not been a major problem for me, as I wasn't really fussed either way. I would have liked the gel to produce some sort of foam and lather up but it doesn't. Nevertheless, it does do a great job at cleansing the skin and I have noticed that some dry patches that were previously problematic have now gone, so I believe it is down to this product and other products from this range that I am currently using. All in all I am really happy with the results!

This is one of my favourite scrubs and believe me I have tried a fair few! From some of the leading brands, but this scrub appeals to me due to it's effectiveness. At first I must say I wasn't so keen on the smell, but it has grown on me especially when I realised how good it was. Firstly, it gives quite a course scrub, but not overly, which is what I like. As you don't have to work so hard to get good results! Secondly, it doesn't leave a greasy residue like some scrubs, again this is particularly appealing to me. One small gripe is that it is quite a messy scrub and it does take a little longer to wash off then some less effective scrubs, but in my opinion that is a very small price to pay if something does the job! I would like the scrub to have come in a plastic container as opposed to glass just from a practical point of view, but the packaging is stunning and looks very expensive. All in all I am pleased with this product and would definitely purchase it again.

Firstly, I have to say that the Occo packaging is stunning! It really does look like they have invested in this area. However, whilst a glass bottle does look nicer then plastic for practical reasons I am not sure that this was a very good idea-especially if you have a ceramic bath like myself. Upon first using this bath oil I was hugely disappointed, mainly due to the fact that the scent that it produces is absolutely non-existent. The fragrance is minimal and if you are wanting to re-create that Spa feeling then this fails to do that, as much of that experience is to do with the smell of a product I think. However, it does make the water soft and in turn your skin is much more silky as a result of using it, but unfortunately that is where the good points end for me. It's a shame really as it does have the potential to be a much nicer product.

I am not really the sort of person who buys a fragrance just on a whim, but I was feeling particularly impulsive on the day that I purchased this one! Having not smelt the fragrance beforehand I have to say that I was slightly nervous about this purchase, but that immediately changed upon receipt of this item. Well what can I say the packaging and bottle are stunning and the fragrance does not disappoint one bit. It smells amazing!! Not sickly or over-powering but the just the right level of intensity for me and it lasts all day without the need to re-apply. I am thrilled to bits with it and even better still I received a lovely bag to go with it for FREE! You cannot ask for more then that now can you?!
